Upwardly mobile: City centre Gardaí to get Segways

The two machines are due to be presented by the Dublin City Business Association to Gardaí on Dublin’s Grafton Street.

THE DUBLIN CITY Business Association (DBCA) is to present two Segways for use by members of An Garda Síochána next Wednesday.

The battery powered machines are set to be presented to Assistant Garda Commissioner, John Twomey, on Dublin’s Grafton Street, in an attempt to improve the mobility and visibility of Gardaí on the street.

Presented as part of a pilot scheme, the success of this urban policing measure may lead to a wider rollout of the machines in future.
